Du Côté de Chez Swann Egg

Ultimate Easter Egg Treats

The Eastern tradition of gifting exquisite chocolate eggs is a delicious one. But with these decadent eggs – courtesy of Michelin-starred chefs – you can experience a treat like no other. Of course, it doesn’t come cheap.

Wealthy buyers can bring a taste of spring over-the-top Easter delicacies with a number of delicacies like the Hôtel Le Bristol Paris’s $740 chocolate nest. The nine pound goodness is a limited-edition dessert – courtesy of the hotel’s three-Michelin-star restaurant Epicure. Almost too beautiful to eat, the sculpted treat consists of four golden eggs rest in a chocolate nest that stands atop a pair of sculpted chicken legs.

The renowned French pastry chef Pierre Hermé—the chief pâtissier at Le Royal Monceau Raffles Paris—has also released a limited-edition Easter creation, Oeuf Tagli. The egg (priced from about $135 for an egg and a selection of bonbons) draws inspiration from 20th-century Italian artist Lucio Fontana’s Olii works. Hermé’s monochromatic eggs, featured in vibrant colors are as tasty as they are aesthetically pleasing. Made from single-origin chocolate from Belize with red fruit notes, they are on display at Le Royal Monceau, and available for purchase at Hermé’s shops throughout France and the UK.

Oeuf Tagli

Ritz Paris’s head pastry chef François Perret took an entire year to compose his Du Côté de Chez Swann Egg concept. The elaborate creation is 7-inch-tall teapot made with 70-percent Carupano chocolate from Venezuela and topped with a chocolate-dipped madeleine crest. A secret trove of miniature madeleines with a praline-hazelnut filling is sure to inspire all kinds of wonderful memories.

Priced at about $85, the egg is available by special order at the Ritz Paris.

 

Whisky collection

A Rare Macallan Collection for $1 Million

A set of rare the Macallan whiskies in limited-edition Lalique crystal decanters were auctioned by Sotheby’s Hong Kong on April 2 for $993,000. This sets a new world record for any lot of whisky sold at auction.

Macallan Collection01

The Legacy Collection consists of six decanters of the Macallan single malts aged from 50 to 65 years. Each represents one of the Macallan’s Six Pillars or a set of characteristics—such as aging in exceptional oak casks, employing small stills, and using the finest cuts. These set the brand apart from competitors. Two companies have collaborated on the Macallan in Lalique Six Pillars series for a little over a decade. And this has been the first ever auction for a complete collection offered for sale.

Macallan Collection 05

Apart from the six decanters, the lot included six miniature bottles from the Macallan’s Fine and Rare series (two each from 1937, 1938, and 1939 respectively), six pairs of hand-crafted Lalique whisky glasses, and autographs from the Macallan’s master blenders.

Macallan Collection 04

This exceptional collection came with an opulent cabinet for storage – courtesy of the craftsmen at Lalique Maison. Made from natural ebony, the true work of art is the only one of its kind in the world. A large percentage from the auction’s proceeds went to charities dedicated to helping the disadvantaged of Hong Kong and throughout Asia – a worthwhile humanitarian effort from Sotheby’s.

Kavalan’s Five New Single Malts

Kavalan’s Five New Single Malts

The Taiwanese distiller Kavalan introduced its first single malt to market fewer than 10 years ago, but that was enough time to establish itself as one of the world’s leading producers of fine whisky. Emerging as an unlikely player on the market for exquisite spirits, the climate of Taiwan has even managed to accelerate the whiskey’s maturation. This has given Kavalan a real shot at competing with renowned whiskey manufacturers in Scotland, America and Japan.

In April, wealthy buyers will be able to sneak a taste of Kavalan’s latest line of sherry and port cask-aged whiskies. The collection includes such exclusive offerings like the Kavalan Amontillado Sherry Cask Single Malt Whisky – matured with a cap of flor, imbuing it with a fresh baked bread flavor that is evident in the whisky. Whiskey aficionados who enjoy their beverage with a zesty citrus flavour will enjoy the Kavalan Manzanilla Sherry Cask Single Malt Whisky with its medley of dried fruit. Kavalan Moscatel Sherry Cask Single Malt Whisky is a sublime treat to the palate thanks to its long, luxuriant and creamy texture, where dates, dark chocolate cake and raspberry jam, honey and toasted nuts come together in a symphony of flavours. The first three varieties of the collection have an asking price of $599 per bottle while the Kavalan PX Sherry Cask Single Malt Whisky will retail for $699. Aged in PX casks, it boasts a subtle lemongrass and toffee nuance for an invigorating sensation on the palate. Finally, there is the Kavalan Port Cask Single Malt Whisky – matured in Portuguese barriques that once held high-alcohol fortified wine. The dense fruit-forward whisky costs $299 per bottle and presents a robust combination of brown sugar and plums, with a hint of smoke.

Chelsea Hotel Manager Stanley Bard’s Art Collection Goes to Auction

Stanley Bard, the longtime part-owner and manager of Manhattan’s legendary Chelsea Hotel, has made a name for being a connoisseur of fine art. Throughout his career he has helped many struggling artists—among them Leonard Cohen, Andy Warhol, and Jasper Johns—to live and work in his hotel for little compensation. As a result, he managed to amass one of the most striking collections that capture the creative spirit of the 21st century.

Chelsea Hotel Art02

Tom Wesselmann’s “Study for Blue Nude”

Following his recent passing, the exclusive collection, which features works from Tom Wesselman, Karel Appel, and Christo will hit the auction block in May. Many of the pieces speak not only to the history of the now-closed Chelsea Hotel, but to a bygone era of one of New York’s most culturally-rich periods. Most pieces are a testament to Bard’s influence on the artists as with Tom Wesselmann’s Face #1, for instance, featuring the note “For Stanley—With Affection—Tom Wesselmann” on its back. The piece is expected to fetch up to $800,000. Handled by Freeman’s, the auction will handle works from some of the greatest artists of this century.

Tom Wesselmann’s “Face #1” 

Slots for the auction will become available at the beginning of May and buyers better hurry up if they want to snap iconic pieces like Philip Taaffe “Untitled”, Larry Rivers “Art and the Artist Portrait and Painting of Arshile Gorky and Christo’s “The Mastaba of Abu Dhabi” – valued at hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Thailand’s New Dream Getaway01

The Arrival Pavilion is home to the villa’s spa—perfect for relaxing and destressing—while also playing host to a master bedroom, en-suite bath, contemporary living area, and a kids bunk room. At just over 11,800 square feet the three-story Main Pavilion is the center of the compound with its massive living area equipped with a library, gym, a main and western kitchen, a dining area that sits up to 16, a wine cellar, recreation room (complete with wet-bar, pool table and movie theatre), a 98-foot infinity pool and an outside deck.

Heart-Shape Diamond01

The Ultimate Gift – The World’s Largest Flawless Heart-Shape Diamond

One lucky girl would get the ultimate gift that will make both Valentine’s Day and diamond history. That is, if her partner can afford to spend over $20 million on Graff’s heart-shaped, D-class, flawless diamond named in celebration of the Roman goddess of Love.

The Graff Venus is the largest D Flawless heart shape diamond in the world, and comes from a 357-carat rough stone found at the Letseng mine in Lesotho in 2015. It was sold by Gem Diamonds for $19.3 million to an undisclosed buyer in September that year, which means that its price as a symmetrical and perfectly polished stone will be, at least, twice as much. The exceptionally demanding Graff Venus is a magnificent type IIa 118.78ct diamond that goes beyond words, and will surely be the object of desire of many high-class women, celebrities and socialites.

Heart-Shape Diamond02

18 months of analysis, cutting and polishing were invested in the transformation of the rough 357-carat stone to get a record-breaking heart-shaped diamond of immaculate quality and proportions. The GIA certificate revealed the highest grading that any stone can achieve for the Graff Venus: D Colour, Flawless, and Type IIA with Excellent Polish, Excellent Symmetry, and No Fluorescence. This gives the exclusive stone a mesmerizing effect and unparalleled value.

Heart-Shape Diamond03

The world’s largest perfect heart-shape stone, The Graff Venus is arguably the most breath-taking in the contemporary series of record-breaking diamonds.

Four Single Malts from Scotland

Whiskey experts have always wanted to bottle the essence of Scotland – the inspiration behind the launch from Golden Decanters. The new collection consists of cask-strength whiskies that epitomize the sublime combination of age and beauty. Each of the four major distilling regions of Scotland is represented in one of the single malt whiskeys. The Highlands – with a 19-year-old Ben Nevis, which is a vibrant blend of wood, spice, and fruit. The Lowlands – with a 22-year-old Auchentoshan, which is deep, rich, and surprisingly full-bodied. Islay is represented by a 26-year-old Bowmore, which is a deceptively sweet single malt with a dry, elegant smokiness midpalate. And Speyside’s offers a 34-year-old Glenlivet that highlights the brand’s delicate sweetness without any overly woody notes—a surprise considering its age.

Each of the four bottles is delicately etched by Glencairn Crystal with a scene of Scotland’s finest pursuits —golf, hunting, fishing, and Highland cattle. The design itself is replicated on the handcrafted American oak boxes in which the bottles are housed. 180 numbered sets were created, of which more than 40 have already been sold since the launch in October. The four whiskies are sold as a set, for about $9,161. Golden Decanters has already announced a second release, with more to come, including a possible U.S. exclusive.

A pleasant pastime for wealthy buyers would be the guided distillery tours that the company offers to its customers who make their way to Scotland. An even more immersive experience is available over the course of two weeks to take in all of Scotland’s castles, fine restaurants, and distilleries. The Golden Decanters whiskies are included in the excursion package, the price of which is available on request.
